In this Tackle Tip Thursday presentation we have Wendy T., pro-staffer from Izorline (our preferred line manufacturer), who shares how to select an appropriate rod length for smaller anglers, including youngsters. Thank you Wendy T. and Izorline for the great tackle tip and all the support for Searcher Sportfishing!

Heading out for one of our weekend 2.5-day trips?

- Your heaviest outfit with 80-100 pound line, for either fishing a flat-fall type lure or using a 16-ounce sinker for live bait

- A 25-30 pound outfit for fly-lining sardines for yellowtail.
